You’re in Kontrol!….A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 5, 2015


Brand Name: Illamasqua

Lipstick Colour: Kontrol

Price: £16.50

Lipcote Rating: 4/5

Illamasqua’s lipsticks are gaining fast popularity, for makeup enthusiasts who demand professional quality products at an affordable price. The full range from this brand offers 3 or 4 purple colours, to suit the growing trend for bold, statement lip shades.


Kontrol seems like the darkest of the purple group, but when it arrived we were pleasantly surprised at its almost pastel lilac effect, with high pigment payoff and a great cool undertone, leaving teeth looking whiter and suiting most skins.


The formula is thick and leaves an impressive creamy-matte finish. Blot well between layers, and use a good sweep of Lipcote to seal this look, because once you do the effect is super powerful. A good tip is to use a pointed lip brush to apply, as sharp edges are a must with such a fashion forward style!


We are loving the Illamasqua packaging, which has a boxy black casing, and embossed logo on the lid along with the logo in cream down the side to top off its classic appeal.


Another great colour from the range and we can just imagine this will look perfect in the spring with any of you ladies rocking pastel hair shades at the moment! We can’t wait to try out the new SS14 ‘Glamore’ range next!…x
